This was with the picture: "Quiltmaker Betty Lenz pulled scraps from her stash to make the 120 foundation pieced Pineapple blocks for the center of this quilt. She also used scraps to applique flowers on a solid black background for a stunning finish."
The blocks are six inches, finished, and I have put a dime on the pattern to show how small the pieces are.
I have pieced 88 of the 120 needed, so I'm getting there. I try to piece at least one block each afternoon. I love doing this, picking and sorting through the little colorful scraps and seeing the finished blocks made from pieces so small that most would be thrown away. I think it will be a pretty quilt. "Waste not, want not."
A follow-up to the previous post:
Easter Sunday came on my birthday this year and so the girls brought supper that evening. One daughter brought a bag of 50 gladiolus bulbs to give half of them to me. Ah-ha! A perfect chance to "pass off" the little doll head! While she was busy with something else, I offered to open the package, then let her count out the bulbs. When I opened the bag, I slipped the doll inside with the bulbs; he's almost the same color and size. She put her hand inside the bag, and said, "I think this one must be ..." (rotten) and lifted out Shelby. We all had a big laugh! Isn't laughter supposed to be the best medicine anyway?
Have a good 'un!
